In the rush for holiday gifts; what bet
ter selection could be made than a good
book? To the bookbuyer and the book
lover the array of holiday editions and edi
tions de luxe, as well as new books by old
authors tried and true. Is bewildering.
The bookshelves are creaking' with tnc
weight of good things, and the- book
tables are spread as heavily with a feast
of things artistic and literary as the hol
iday board will be with Christmas deli
cacies. Nevertheless, in no other way
can good taste bo better shown than In
the purchase of books to bestow upon
one's friends. In no other way can one's
perception of tastes, ambitions, aspirations
of one's intimates be shown than in the
choice of a book that will exactly satisfy
their longings, and not pass to the forgot
ten corner where everyone consigns their
annual harvest of misguided gifts.
"People flock in hero dally," said the
head of one of the sales departments of a
large bookstore yesterday, and do you
know. It would surprise you how many
have no definite Idea as to what they want
to buy. They come to us for Ideas and
suggestions, and these we give them. As
they wander by the book tables, their
eyes light upon a pretty binding, or they
pick up a book with fine illustrations,
and their choice Is made. There are two
things that make up a good-selling Christ
mas book neat binding and Illustration,
and bright, interesting contents. They
pick the binding and illustrations to suit
them, and then they ask us for the story.
If that suits them, the sale Ib made."
What to Bay for Sweetheart f
"Now supposing that a young man
comes in and asks: What will be a good
book for mo to buy my sweetheart?' What
would you answer?" suggested the re
porter. "Well, they are never that direct. They
usually ask what would be a nice present
for a "young lady.' Of course, we know,
and we always pretend not to. In a case
like that we find that the art editions are
good sellers. Charles Dana Gibson's 'The
Widow and Her Friends' is almost up' to
the top of Christmas sellers. They are
fine books, and make very acceptable
"Now maybe you will bo surprised, but
we find that there is a groat demand for
Bibles at this time of year. A great
many people pick out fine Oxford editions
for their friends. There is, also, a steady
demand for Shakespeare, and the editions
of the poets and the standard authors.
This shows one stream of popular taste
that is never diverted Into current fic
tion." People Like Spicy Dialogue.
Just then an anxioi's woman stepped up
and inquired for a book that would make
interesting reading for a young woman.
"What kind of a bock do you want?"
asked one of the clerks near by.
"Oh, one where he says and then she
says," answered the would-be purchaser.
She was satisfied w'th that romantic
story. "When Knighthood Was in Flow
er," by Charles Major, which contains
plenty of spicy dialogue.
"You see how things go," remarked the
head of the department.
How a Young; Man Bnyn His Boolts.
In another store a young man was buy
ing his Christmas presents. "I take dif
ferent streaks," said he. "One year I buy
all my girts at a Jewelry store. Last year
I ransacked a crockery establishment.
This year 1 am doing the bookstores. 1
pride myself upon giving gifts that hit off
some peculiarity or characteristic of the
person receiving it. Now I want a copy
of 'Fables for the Fair,' by Josephine
Dodge Daskam. to give to a very pretty
little girl In another city. That will just
suit the little beauty, and the flattery is
very delicate, I think. And then there is
the little girl that rides why, she gets
'Racing Rhymes, by Adam Lindsay Gor
don, with a fine photogravure of a horse
by Max Klepper. There's another girl 1
know that has never outgrown her love
for fairy tales. I think it's rather a clev
er conceit to give her Andrew Lang's 'Vi
olet Fairy Book.' I know she will fairly
revel In It. I couldn't resist buying an
edition de luxe of Washington Irving's
'Knickerbocker History of New "York for
a girl that is now teaching school. She'll
fairly gloat over it. There is one girl that
threw me down.
"What'll she get?" some one asked.
For the Girl That Threw Him Down.
"Well, that took me a long time. I've
got It now. I am going to send her 'Love
Sonnets of a Hoodlum,' by Wallace Irwln.
It's about the cleverest thing out, costs
23 cente. and tells the story of how frosty
Mame gives little Willie, the butcher boy,
the go-by and ties up with Kid Murphy,
the 14-dollar-a-week drug cleric The key
note of the book Is 'Showing how Vanity
is still on deck, and humble Virtue gets it
in the neck.' That will fix her."
"And the real one what does she get?"
was another question, popped out by an
"Well, it's between Kate Douglas Wig
gln's 'A Cathedral Courtship' and Paul
Leicester Ford's 'Wanted A Matchmak
er.' Beth are rather good titles I haven't
read the books and both delicately sug
gestive of where I stand."

place on Christmas day, after a sumptu
ous dinner, and dipping into the pages of

Postofllce Will Be Made Sab-Station
of Portland System Rcsnlt of
Mount Tabor, Including practically
School District No. 5. will shortly be pro
vided with free mail delivery. A para
graph In the Washington dispatcher, of
The Oregonlan yesterday morning make3
the announcement that Mount Tabor
postofllce will be a sub-station of the
Portland postofllce, with free delivery.
Free delivery Is thus secured for Post
master E. S. Brubaker3 district, on peti
tion of A. P. Tift and about a dozen oth
ers. The petition was sent to the postal
authorities some time ago. Then In
spector Clements mxde an investlgatljn
of the territory, and asked Postmaster
Brubaker If It would be acceptable and
satisfactory to nim It the pcstoiDcc thero
should be changed into a sub-station,
and an afflrmatlve answer was g'ven.
This was the last Mr. Brubiker heard of
tho matter until yesterday.
The Mount Tabor postofllce serves
about 2300 people, or nearly the whole of
School District No. 5. which 'contains
about 3000. In Center Addition, north of
the Base Line road, is a small otnee. The
lines of the territory are the city limits
on the west, Hawihorne avenue on the
south, Montavllla on the east, and n
line about a quarter of a mile north of
the Base Line road. It Is proposed that
one carrier shall serve the district, but
he will prooably be overburdened at the
start, owing to the extent of the terri
tory he will have to cover. However,
with a horse and cart he can probably
make two dally deliveries. Postmaster
Brubaker said he d.d not know how soon
the change v. ill be made, nor any of thn
details of the arrangements, but expects
to receive the information very soon.
The new3 that Mount Tabor will ,oon
have free mail delivery will be received
with general rejoicing by the residents
of the district
WANTS A POLICE OFFICER.
Montavllla Askn County to Appoint a
Salaried Deputy for That Place.
The Montavllla Sub-Board of Trade has
appointed Dr. William Devenny, W. C.
Aylsworth, Henry Wingert and Captain
Schneider to ask the County Court to
appoint a deputy sheriff and to pay him
a salary to act as policeman for that
place. A petition confalning 100 names
has, already beeen presented to the Coun
ty Court asking for that officer. Monta
vllla Is on the Base Line road, and some
rough characters have been making a
practice of going out there and causing
a disturbance. There is nothing to re
strain them, and they do as they please.
It Is thought that If a deputy sheriff were
named and paid a. small salary, his pres
ence would have a good effect Monta
vllla Is a peaceful suburb, and yet has
acquired a reputation for disturbances to
which the place is not entitled, simply
because these disturbers gather from the

Campaign to Have Big: Fair There.
The University Park Sub-Board of
Trade has started a vigorous campaign
to secure the location of the Lewis and
Clark Fair of 1905 at that place. It has
issued some circular letters to the large
subscribers to the stock of the Fair As
sociation, setting forth the advantages of
that location. Attention Is called to the
superior hftrbor facilities afforded by the
river and the high ground, and various
other advantages are spoken of
The Sub-Board seems determined to
land the big fall there If possible, but
Its efforts .- kely to call out similar
efforts from ur localities. The Sell
wood Sub-Board has not given up the
contest for City View Park, and will not
as long as there is hope of winning. An
other location Is gently whispered around,
and that Is the Ladd tract on Hawthorne

MAYOR SHOOTS DUCKS.
He Claim HIk Oivn anil All That a
Friend BriiiRs Don u.
Mayor Howe returned from his second
hunting trip to a friend's preserve on
the Columbia bottom loaded down to tha
guards with ducks, and there were no
decoys among them, either. Beyond say
ing that he had enjoyed a magnificent
day's shoot, but little could be gotten
out of him about his trip.
The friend who accompanied him that
day has, however, revealed some of tho
troubles he fell Into, through shooting
with the Mayor. At tlrst they occupied
the same blind, but as the Mayor began
shooting as soon as any ducks came In
sight, and kept his pump-gun going till
the ducks were out of sight, ho did not
stand any show, so concluded after a
while to go to another blind about a
It was understood that whenever he
called "Look out!" the Mayor was to Ho
low, and give him a chance at ducks
which came near his blind. Presently a
line Hock of ducks came his way, and
when he was about to shoot at them ho
called to the Mayor: "Look out'." In
stead of keeping out of sight, he jumped
out of his blind and began blazing away
at the ducks. This disgusted the friend,
who had knocked down several ducks,
and made him uncomfortable, as the shot
from the Mayor's gun fairly rained down
Into his blind.
After several experiences of this kind
he shouted to the Mayor that he would
go to another blind about half a mile off.
The Mayor said this was a good plan, as
mo3t of his duck3 were falling over near
that blind. So the friend emigrated, and
the Mayor claimed all the ducks In sight
and had them picked up and put on hU
string. It never occurring to him that
his friend had shot any.
He felt very proud of his good shooting
and intends to go out again before long,
but is not likely to find any one to risk
life or reputation vith him. If he goes
alone he may have a chance to see how
many ducks he really can shoot.
